Waves of Change

"Hey look, I'm not weighed down
As I walk through
The glowing wheat fields churning on the ground
As all the ravens fly away
They leave nothing
But the sun and endless blue day

I always knew I felt this way
But couldn't find the time to say
To myself I've got to let it go
Through all the joy and all the pain
With the drought and the rain
The honest truth is all I want to know

Let it fall
Let go

My kingdom's walls have fallen down
But I know that
I don't wear an undeserved crown
And though it seemed to fit me well
Underneath it
I would certainly fall down

Last summer we left things unsaid
That should be now a long time dead
And now it seems that time has put it well
The words can chase away a friend
But to a lie they'll bring an end
And throw it down the darkest, deepest well

Let it fall
Let go"

- Sean Watkins

Some things don't cost alot, some do. Take this dress. I paid $15 for it from Old Navy. I love it just as much as some of my $200 dresses from Anthropologie. It's a pretty color, it's comfortable, it's figure-flattering, and it has great details. In a time in my life where certain decisions are costing me alot, it's nice to have something like this little dress to remind me that life can sometimes be simple. Change is always difficult, and I'm going through alot of it right now. It's so easy to get weighed down with the cost. I take comfort in the fact that I'm being true to myself for the first time in my life. The peace of mind that comes with this far outweighs the cost.

Today's song is "Let It Go" by Sean Watkins. He's a member of the band Nickel Creek. This is a beautiful song that eloquently sums up my feelings.

    Sherry: Thanks! It's funny. I was thinking about you today. I was worried because I hadn't heard from you in a while. I missed you! I got your email. You are too sweet! I will reply back today.

  5. I know how you feel. This is your life, your only life. You have to do the things that are right, for you, despite the costs.

    Yes, it is important to decide wisely but I feel like in the end, no matter how much you resist or how much you may want to go against your nature and fight against what your heart is telling you that you need, the heart always wins.

    Just roll with it!

  6. I know what you're going through and I think you're really brave. Good luck with everything.
